Ace the Interview with an Orion Interview Preparation Webinar

For many transitioning veterans, interviewing for a civilian job may be the first time you've ever been in this situation. In the military, natural career progression and a demonstrated record of performance have most likely dictated the particular jobs you have secured.

Corporate America is different. In order to secure the position you are targeting, you must be able to convince an interviewer that your military experience and your demonstrated track record of performance are a strong fit for their organization. The candidate who can best relate his or her background and strengths to an interviewer will be the one who gets the job.

But it doesn't have to be intimidating. Our Interview Preparation webinars are designed specifically for Military Officers and Technicians and cover all the essentials of Interview Preparation - how and what you should prepare, do's and don'ts during any interview, practical assignments to help guide you, and much more.

According to Your Peers

 

"I was a Prime Power Production Specialist in the Army and got out as a Sergeant. It was a very technical job that required a lot of interdisciplinary knowledge on electrical and mechanical systems. Orion really seemed to be focused on quality recruits from very technical backgrounds. Orion found a bunch of companies that I was really excited to work for! My position at Aesynt is challenging and exciting and something I didn't even know existed." - Todd Purtell, Field Service Engineer

"I'm very thankful that Orion gave me the opportunity to obtain this job with General Electric. I have met great people, and that makes my job very comfortable. I believe that a positive work environment is one of the most important things in a work place, and I am grateful to have found that at General Electric." - Juan Casaretto, Field Service Technician

"Not only did Orion help me find a job, but it is a job that I like and pays well, with a company that takes care of their employees, with plenty of room for advancement. I absolutely love Orion. They got both my husband and me awesome positions with amazing companies that we are proud to be a part of. I only wish I had used Orion sooner!" - Kathleena Girling, Field Service Engineer
